Arsenal turned up the heat on Liverpool in the race for Champions League football as an Olivier Giroud brace helped them to a 4-1 win at Stoke.
However Iwobi's uncle, Premier League legend Jay-Jay Okocha, has claimed the youngster will remain at Arsenal regardless of whether Arsene Wenger extends his deal or not.
There were moments of anxiety at the bet365 Stadium, particularly in the second half when Stoke substitute Peter Crouch reduced arrears to 2-1 and the home side finally looked capable of troubling the hosts.
Swansea could be celebrating another season in the league on Sunday. Arsene Wenger's side played with urgency to seal a win that puts them a point behind fourth-placed Liverpool, with both sides having two to play.
However, after beating Manchester United, Southampton and now Stoke in the last three matches, the 67-year-old showed few signs of backing down in the face of strident criticism.
The result means that should Liverpool fail to pick up maximum points at London Stadium, Arsenal will qualify for next season's Champions League by winning their final two home games against Sunderland and Everton.
"I just think he has shown again that it's not only about talent, but it's as well about desire and fighting, and he has that as well".
"I just threw everything at it and it's come off my hand a little bit but it was a goal and I was pleased to score another one", the veteran striker told Stoke City Player regarding his ninth goal this term.
But while Wenger's name was sung out heartily by supporters inside Stoke's stadium early in the game a plane flew overhead carrying a banner calling for the Frenchman not to return next season.
Today, he scored his 50th Premier League goal for Arsenal, and in doing so he has become the third-quickest player to achieve the feat for the club. There were two more goals for Olivier Giroud and another from Mesut Ozil, all of them ruthlessly taken, and the promise of many more against Sunderland at the Emirates on Tuesday. I'm not in politics. "I've seen that happen before (but) a long time ago". I'm in sport, I love sport and give my 24 hours a day for what I love. "Some agree with me and some not, but I have no special opinion on that".
Although they have not won there since 2010, losing on four of their eight visits, Wenger's men will be hopeful of ending that sorry sequence so long as Alexis Sanchez is in the team.
